This Friday is Valentine’s Day. In a lot of marriages, this day comes and goes without a whole lot of acknowledgement. We women see it on the calendar – we know it’s there, we’ve helped our children write out all their little Valentine’s Day cards…and we cross our fingers that our husband NOTICES it is Valentine’s Day.
But rather than waiting around for something that might not happen – how about we use this day to show our husbands appreciation for the blessing that they are in our lives. This day gives us a reason to shower our husbands with some extra Tender Loving Care!!!
Philippians 2:3,4 says “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”
Let me make a suggestion as to what a majority of men want even if they aren’t willing to say it:
Which of the three does your husband need from you right now?
Thank you so much for your insight, Courtney! I love all of these ideas. I took your “all red meal” idea and ran with it….here we go!
Strawberry Spinach Salad
This salad can be made ahead of time and tossed with the dressing when you’re ready to serve!
This is an excellent choice to make ahead of time ( the night before) so that you don’t have to clean up the kitchen on Valentine’s day! Add a little extra sauce and wait to bake until you are ready!
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
These are a classic treat for Valentine’s day and they are SO easy to make!
Simple Party Punch
Here’s a delicious drink the entire family will enjoy.
Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!!!!
